New contract win for HCL Social Care

HCL Social Care partnership with the Victoria Climbié Foundation

HCL Social Care is delighted to have the Victoria Climbié Foundation (VCF) as our partner for 2016. The partnership is based on a shared commitment to promoting best practice in children’s social care.

The Victoria Climbié Foundation (VCF) campaigns for improvements in child protection policies and practices and to ensure effective links and coordination between statutory agencies, care services and black and minority ethnic communities. The foundation was established in 2003 following the tragic murder of eight year old Victoria by her guardians, in a case that led to a public inquiry into the failure of social services and produced major changes in child protection policies in the UK.

HCL attended the VCF conference in late 2013 and was inspired to establish a more lasting connection. HCL’s Managing Director, Gary Chatfield, said: “We see it as the responsibility of HCL Social Care to continually enhance the reputation of social workers in the sector. We aim to achieve this with an unwavering commitment to providing Continuing Professional Development to all our locums. Our consultants build strong relationships with our candidates which enables us to be confident we are placing the best people for the job. We are excited about our partnership with VCF because the work they undertake is so closely linked to what we strive to offer our clients and candidates”.

Mor Dioum, Director of VCF, expressed enthusiasm for the year ahead: “We are delighted that VCF has been chosen as HCL Social Care’s charity partner for 2016. Together, we can progress our aims to raise the profile of good social care practice through proper selection and training of staff at all levels, to achieve more positive outcomes for children and families”.

HCL Social Care, a division of HCL Workforce Solutions, has been the UK’s leading supplier of qualified social workers and social care professionals for over 20 years. Our partnership with VCF, which we hope will develop and grow beyond 2016, demonstrates our intention to work with other stakeholders to raise the quality of social workers being placed nationally in temporary and full time posts, to disseminate examples of best practice and to feed the experiences of the social care professionals and Local Authorities we represent into improvements in child protection policy.
